NEW FAD: Wed In Church, Rock At The Reception!

A new fad has sneaked into most Christian weddings in Nigeria. Going now are the days Christians recoil at the sound of  lewd and ‘unchristian” music oozing out of the television or radio sets in their homes, cars, or church environments. Going, going, seem to be those good old days. Days when clubbing and digging to ungodly songs were for the unbelievers and the strayed.

An ugly era has dawned. An evil craze sweeping through places of worship. A trend that allows the disco-house to be tacitly or explicitly brought into the church environment. The Bible makes it very clear that wherever two or more of HIS people are gathered, there HE is also. The air around that church environment need not be fouled with ungodly beats and lyrics.

I have witnessed a few weddings where even some highly revered church leaders officiated. Heart-lifting songs were rendered, life-changing sermons delivered, and God’s presence brought down through pastoral prayers. Shortly after, at the after-church wedding reception, the atmosphere changed, and in place of groovy godly songs, Wizkid, D-Banj, or KC melodies took over the airwaves, sending even the seemingly sanctimonious in the crowd twisting in ecstasy and self abandon, while the wiser looked on in silent disapproval or feigned indignation!

Weddings of some notable Nigerian church leaders’ children have not been spared this plague either. More of a case of dual lifestyles. 

A Christian is he who has forsaken the allure of this sinful world and surrendered to the lordship of God through the grace of the Lord Jesus Christ, not just in the church or on Sundays but everywhere, and with every ounce of his being. The word forsaken means to jilt, reject, or denounce- not just the sins but also all appearances of evil. A Christian is expected to be the likeness of Christ in every sense of it.

The lifestyle of a child of God in Christ ought to reflect the life and characters of Christ. A Christ-centered man or woman will love a Wizkid, KC, or Dbanj but certainly not their lewd and unedifying songs; loving them enough to desire and pray for their salvation, and loving them enough to stay away from their corruptions. 

I pray our church leaders and parents will stop condoning this evil. It is sincerely heart wrenching to see church leaders lose their judgmental caps when its their own children going astray. 

For intending Christian couples, put a leash on your DJ or music band, days before your wedding day. Sound it loud to them, put pen to paper if need be. Ensure your wedding day is kept sacred. Let no mindless groovy crazy Dj or band ruin your dream day. You have every right to stand still on the dance floor and demand for that spiritually and morally bankrupt music to be changed. It should not matter if the song or album is the latest nonsense in town!

The Bible says in 1 Thessalonians 5:21-22, “But examine everything carefully; hold fast to that which is good; abstain from every form of evil”, Christian Living Bible. And in 1 Corinthians 10:31, “So whether you eat or drink or whatever you do, do it all for the glory of God”, NIV.

Let us keep in the line, trusting in His help. Let us live the Christian lifestyle. Shalom.
